Factory produced using (THEN) new *SH* brass cases with “ U.M.C. S H .50-110.” Head-Stamp and loaded with a 300 grain *Copper Tubed Lead* projectile.*WCF* : Winchester Central Fire ( Center -Fire today)*SH* = Solid Head : a term used back in the day to identify cases drawn from brass, (like most all today)            *Copper Tubed Lead* projectile: a lead hollow-pointed projectile into which is inserted a thin, closed-ended copper tube.
